LolliHops: Craft beer enthusiast producing hops-infused candy

Mar 24, 2015

Standing over an ordinary stove stirring an ordinary pot, Heather Hadsel makes what is almost ordinary hard candy. Sugar, corn syrup, water. But just as her sweet treat reaches 300 degrees, she stirs in something not so ordinary: hops. Hadsel concocts LolliHops, candy on a stick spiced with the product normally used to flavor beer, as the first product line for her startup, Yakima Hop Candy.
